I remember when Mezcalito's Cantina was brand new to Decatur and the fare was quite good. The owners seemed to care about the quality of the food, items were homemade and had distinct flavors. Unfortunately, the fare seems to have diminished in quality and tastefulness...More

The food was very, very tasty and original. This is no "cookie cutter" Mexican joint. The menu was interesting with a variety of options and the entrees we had were high quality. We were with a large group on a cold & rainy night and...More

OK. Let's say this first. I really like Mezcalito's. The food & drinks are quite good. My partner & I have been coming here 2-3 times a month for 2 years. The service is (and always has been) OK to bad. That was OK with...More

Nice reliable Mexican food. Nothing special. Brunch is fine. Plenty of vegetarian options. Never tried the other Mex restaurant in Oakhurst so can't compare

The sandwiches were excellent and the service was great. They accommodated our family needs and the food was prepared quickly.

Most dishes are good eats. Always enjoy the tres leches cake at the end. Not really a drinking joint though they have a full bar. Comfortable seating and pleasant atmosphere.

So I love grilled fish tacos--apparently these are not "authentic" or true Baja style, but that is what I like, and Mezcalito's does them, and does them extremely well. They are seasoned and grilled to perfection, served with a tasty sauce, onions and a little...More

We've been here a couple of times and were not impressed. First of all, their margaritas are below average. Their food is okay, but I was hungry afterward (my portion was small). I got a seafood plate (daily special) that was pricier than the menu...More

We recently moved into the neighborhood and have now tried Mezcalito's twice and have twice been underwhelmed. Atmosphere is nice enough and the service is cordial, but our food has been mediocre at best. On our most recent visit, the fish tacos were OK but...More
